Hey, what are the red stems/underleaf plants on the far right against the side glass?
Yeah I hear Dark Achilles can melt quite a bit.
Just so you know, I remember hearing people say even CPDs will eat the really small shrimplets, but if enough ground cover and other dense hiding places for the shrimp, most should survive long enough to grow to a size big enough to not get eaten. I think CPDs mouths are a tiny bit smaller than Ember tetras, but tetras are a little more active hunter compared to CPDs. But both species are doable, just preference in appearance. I do think the CPDs would be more entertaining to watch, mine play with each other throughout most of the day. The ember tetras might school some, but once comfortable they will be like neon tetras and just hover around. The CPDs dotted bodies kind of go with the speckled Buces also haha. There are even tinier fish, like Chili Rasbora and the other similar species, very tiny, but some can have some pretty nice coloration.
